The village boasts a temple which was built in 1881 under the Tu Duc Dynasty (1848-1883) to honour a special lady. It is shaded by a 100-year-old decandrous persimmon tree which is green all-year round. Its base is so big that two people can’t embrace it. Also, there is a shrine worshipping Confucius, 19 mandarins in the Nguyen Reign (1802-1945) and graduates recording high marks. The local people established 12 wharfs in the village, namely Cay Bang, Chua, Mieu Vu, Cay Thi, etc., and annually hold a boat-race festival on the O Lau River.

These ancient houses occupy a large space along the village roads and lanes and near gardens, temples, shrines and ancestor worship houses. Most notably is the ancient house of former District Chief Ho Dinh Lan. Passing the house’s gate, one will see a small wall decorated with patterns, ornamental water basin and a winding path that creates a harmony for the house. Despite being 100 years old, the house still flaunts its shining jack-fruit wood pillars and a lacquered panel of King Duy Tan (1909-1916) recognizing the honest mandarin’s merits. The nearby ancient house of Ho Van Te is also over 100 years old. It also remains intact with a beautiful set of settee engraved with delicate patterns and beams covered with bas-reliefs. Beside the ancient home of the Ho family is the 200 year-old house of old Truong Cong Bac with the architectural style of three compartments and two lean-tos, brown tile roof, moss-covered walls and black doors. The house has a large yard paved with Bat Trang tiles.
